Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington are proud to continue to provide a great program each summer for families of children with special needs. Supporting Kids in Camp (SKIC) provides children who have special needs with trained and experienced one-to-one workers, called Support Counsellors, so that they may attend specialized and/or integrated community camps.
There is no cost to families for this service!
This program is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) and will help to address one-to-one support needs during summer camps. If you are interested in applying for a support counsellor so that your child may be fully included and supported at a camp program, please read the following information:

We are currently planning our SKIC program for Summer 2024, with registration opening April 2, 2024, at 12:00 pm.
